BBQ Thai @ Old Klang Road

There's a place good for Thai food that seems hidden in Old Klang Road. For me its considered hidden because i didnt even realize it existence even tough i drive by OKR quite frequently.

That's how it looks like, at the left side of not far away once you entered OKR from KL.

The setup inside with tables in open air. Its a bit dark at night coz the lighting is quite minimum outside.

The's a few nice indoor private dining rooms available, but if you wish to get it, make sure you make your booking earlier.

Pandan water. Not the main thing, but is essential for thai food....your life savior XD 

Thai BBQ Pork Neck

Kang Kung
wanted to order paku-pakis actually, but not available that day ><

Pandan Chicken

Here comes the bomb....Tomyam Seafood Soup

Thai BBQ Squid

Thai Dako...

Thai Cassava w Coconut Milk

All the food taste good!
However i didnt share out the dish price coz i when before GST.
No doubt, this is a freaking late post ><

The Front Door Cafe @ Grocer's Inn, Jalan Sultan

Here's another hidden cafe in KL.
I do not know it's existence until weeks ago my friend jio me here for brunch. XD

The Front Door Cafe is inside a backpacker inn called "Grocer's Inn". Try search for Grocer's Inn instead of the cafe name as you can see from the picture above, you wont realise there's a cafe inside.

Here's the interior of the cafe.
Most light source in the cafe is the natural light coming from the window panels.
So, if you plan to do some food porn in this cafe, try get a table near to the entrance.
Mine was quite inside as you can see from the picture above><.

So far there's only a 3 pages menu for the soft launch of this cafe. Full menu will be announce soon. 

Prawn Aglio Oolio (RM17) 

Signature Toast (RM18 for 3 slices)

and here's mine - The Front Door Platter (RM22)
- totally satisfied with the taste even though all the dish are just the simple one 

Cappucino (RM9)
-coffee not bad too!

I realised that there's no lard in the menu and the waiters here are some malays. 
So for my Islamic friends who wish to dropby, do wait for their grand launch. Hopefully there's a halal logo on their full menu where currently there's no where sighted.

There's a short path with nice graffiti on the way to the washroom. You may snap a few selfies or groupies here before leaving. 

The old windows on the other side of the path.

A short message to you XD.

Ernest Zacharevic's Murals @ Ipoh Old Town

In end of June 2014, Ipoh Old Town White Coffee unveils murals of artist Ernest Zacharevic in Ipoh Old Town. "Art of Old Town", a special project by Old Town White Coffee for the people in Ipoh. These murals relates the culture and lifestyle of locals based on what he experienced in Ipoh.

All the 7 murals are surrounded in the old town within walking distance (might be a bit far if you are a

There's customised map available in Old Town White Coffee branch facing Padang Ipoh. And the above map is what i got from the tourist center opposite. I think shld be the same map.

So to ease up your life if you plan to hunt down the murals, park your car near Padang Ipoh, get a copy of map and starts hiking. 
Parking in Ipoh is using coupon system. So do check the enforcement hours and get the coupons from nearby grocery stores or coffee shop. Some may sell you the whole book of coupon (RM6 if not mistaken) or some may also sell in pieces.

Absolute Thai @ Ikano Power Center

After a long walk in Ikea, my family and i walk to IPC for dinner since ikea's cafe was crazy crowded as usual and we were lazy to queue up and hunt for table.

With all the cafe and restaurant names listed on the directory list, only Absolute Thai that seems interesting to us. So here goes our dinner.

The simple menu in Absolute Thai.

If the names are alien to you, just flip over the menu for some visuals of the dishes.

On one side of the wall, there're plenty of coke design clocks hanging as deco...

...and on the other side...a line of small creatures (forgot da names) standing

Stir-fried baby kailan with salted fish (RM14.90)
-not bad

Stir-fried bean curd with hot basil leaves (RM12.90)
-quite spicy

Thai Fish Cakes (RM12.90)
-a good apetizer but quite spicy

Pandan Leaves Chicken (RM19.90)

Green curry chicken (RM16.90)
- the green curry aroma is kinda less

Overall, for me the food here is just average.
Not sure if other branch also doing the same.
